Neturei Karta's Moshe Aryeh Friedman Rejected In Antwerp

I was proud to read the following on Bechadrei:

Moshe Aryeh Friedman is a leader of Neturei Karta from Vienna, Austria. He famously led a group of his peers to visit Iran and its president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and to partake in a conference there about the Holocaust (that they say never happened).

Since then Friedman has suffered personally due to his idiotic beliefs and actions. He had to leave Austria. Half a year ago he made his way to Antwerp, but has found no respite there. The community has banned him, they don't allow him into any shul and despite having registered his children with every school in town, they have all refused to accept them.

The latest report is due to Friedman having tried to force their hand. He showed up at a school and tried to push his way in to get them in to learn, but the guard prevented his entry. In response, Friedman called the police and claimed he had been hit, and his kids shoved. Security forces arrived and saw no evidence of any damage or beating having taken place.

I feel bad for the kids, who themselves have done nothing wrong and are suffering because of their father. Despite that, it is nice to see the community stand strong and forcefully against him and reject him because of his involvement with Iran (and perhaps more directly because of his participation in that conference).

I don't know why he wants to send his kids to any of those schools anyway - they obviously teach things that he himself would call heresy. Perhaps he should send his kids to the schools in Iran.

  1. THE ARTICLE IN ISRAELI WEBSITE BEHADRE HAREDIM IS INDEED FALSE, PROVOCATIVE AND IRRESPONSIBLE, ALSO PART OF YOUR ARTICLE IS INACCURATE AND FALSE WOULD RECOMMEND TO DELETE!

    AS YOU KNOW BEHADRE HAREDIM AND THEIR LEADER GUY COHEN ARE CURRENTLY UNDER HEAVY CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS HERE IN ISRAEL, WERE JUST RECENTLY AND TEMPORARY RELEASED FROM PRISON IN ISRAEL.

  4. ya know, I could have believed you that the report was inaccurate and maybe something was a bit different than the story reported. However, when you say he is now considered a Zionist and has befriended all jewish communities around the world, I know you are just making this up. tafasta meruba lo tafasta.

  5. I was looking into the story in Antwerp Belgium deeper and indeed there are many elements in this report not true and maybe even false, just 1 example unlike the report he did not try to force his children in the school, it was his wife who simply came with court order and final decision/order from Belgium’s minister for education to the school and in a friendly fashion followed her duty to register her children into the school, the law requirement every Belgium citizen follows and has to follow, so she was pushed away at the front door by a private Israeli security guard, when the security guards realized that they are on camera by a gentleman nearby and that their contempt of court will be proven, they assaulted the gentleman and stole his camera, Police came Attackers were taken into police station, and the ambulance took the victim to hospital, Mr. Friedman was not attacked and never claimed to have been attacked,

    Incident Occurred on the street in front of security cameras and there is no reason that the attackers should not be arrested soon, and could probably be convicted to substantial amount of years in prison according to Belgium law.

    However here in Israel they together with conspirators, and certainly those hiring and giving them the orders to violently oppose the legal system, certainly have been already behind bars with continues investigations.

    As to whether or not or how far Mr. Friedman is befriended with the entire Jewish community around the world is probably not of any relevance.

  7. Looks like Neturei Karta have taken to reading your blog, Rafy. I am pretty sure that no "normative" religious school would relish having Friedman's kids in their class, and I am delighted that people are not welcoming him into shul

  8. This is ancient news. Friedman disavowed his former views in 2009. He lives quietly with his family in Brooklyn. Leave the man alone - he has done tshuva.

    1. who ever told you he's living in Brooklyn and that he changed his beliefs, does not know the truth. He is currently in Antwerp, trying with court orders to get his boys into the girls school. He's masering everything he can and trying to bring misery to the Yidden there

    2. Well, you can't keep that clown down for long. Sounds like he's moved on from NK to just plain insanity. According to reports in 2009, which included a radio interview in his very own words, he has renounced his old beliefs.

      No idea what he's up to in Antwerp, but really all he wants is attention.

  10. last week shabbes he wanted to daven in Lubavitch ,in Antwerp,as no other shul woled let him in but than Satmer came to tell that he was in cherem and not to let him in ....

    ReplyDelete
  11. He is in cherem by multiple rabbinical bodies, and no one deals with him in antwerp or suffers the same faith.

    He supposedly denounced his own theories and beliefs, otherwise they would allow him entry to the usa.
    As soon as he left, he went back to his old lifestyle.

    That includes throwing (his now late) 90+ year old father in law from his house, as well as other lovely actions...

    Wake up guys please !
